Okay, this is just a fun idea. Ecofont.

sample of the Ecofont by Spranq

My wife always tells me to stop printing things out at home. That way, her toner cartridge will last a little longer. (But I just print it out at the office anyways, right?)

So some enterprising people at Spranq created this wonderful new typeface entitled Ecofont, based on the open-source Vera Sans, except with lots of dots in it. The dots ensure that you will use significantly less toner when printing out all those important documents on your laser printer. They designed it “to avoid unnecessary wastage in ink” and toner, and to “increase environmental awareness.”

Cool. I’ll try to use it sometime and report back.
